Project Description
The development objective of the Land Administration Project for Liberia is to strengthen the institutional capacity of the Liberia land authority (LLA) and establish a land administration system. The project comprises of four components. The first component is support to the Liberia land authority. With the passage of the LLA act by the legislature in October 2016, the LLA has the legal mandate for land administration in Liberia. Even though the LLA has been legally established, and the Transition Committee has been appointed by the President, the LLA will need support in key areas to become operational. The second component is support for inventory and analysis of tribal land certificates. Tribal land certificates refer to a legal document signed by the Tribal Authority and issued by the County Land Commissioner under the 1956 and 1973 public lands laws certifying that the local community consents to the land being sold as public land and that the land is not part of a tribal reserve and not otherwise owned or occupied. The third component is development of a land administration system. Further support and analysis to establish a land administration system is required, specifically regarding customary land rights. The fourth component is project coordination, monitoring and evaluation. This component will support operational costs required for project implementation within the framework of the LLA.
